The Soggy Astronomer, otherwise known as Sorin, has been interested in science and space for as long as he can remember. He relocated from Seattle to Denver 2 years ago, but still struggles to find clear nights. He acquired his first quality telescope in November 2013. Sorin realized astrophotography wasn’t quite as hard as the experts would have us believe, so he decided to share some of his experiences to make it easier for others.
One persistent challenge for astronomy in Seattle was the weather; Seattle has 294 cloudy or partly cloudy days a year, including 152 rainy days. That leaves 71 days of clear skies, and explains the name. Having moved to Denver, Sorin has already managed to get himself soaking wet due to the many thunder storms that role in more quickly than you might think.
